PREFACE.

Line

Every successful engineer is a born inventor; indeed the daily workof an engineer in practice largely consists in scheming and devisingfrom previous experience new and improved processes, methods, anddetails for accomplishing them, and for simplifying or cheapening oldforms of machinery and the work they produce, to enable him tosuccessfully compete with others, who are perhaps as ingenious andenterprising as himself.

In the work of designing machinery the draughtsman has to relymainly on his memory for inspiration; and, for lack of an idea, hasfrequently to wade through numerous volumes to find a detail or movementto effect a particular purpose. Hence, as a rule, every man’swork runs in a groove, his productions generally having the stamp ofhis particular experience and training clearly marked upon them.

In the course of twenty-five years of such experience, I have foundthe want of such a volume as the present, and endeavoured to supplythe deficiency in my own practice by private notes and sketches,gathered promiscuously, until the difficulty of selection and arrangementbecame so apparent that I began to classify them, as they exist in thefollowing pages. A few weeks of unusual leisure have enabled me tocomplete this work and amplify it by numerous additions, and it isnow presented in the hope that it will be found of equal service toothers engaged in the head-splitting, exhausting work of schemingand devising machinery, than which I can conceive of no head-workmore wearing and anxious, Several valuable works have already[vi]found numerous users, and there is no lack of admirable collectionsof memoranda, rules, and data for designing and proportioning thevarious constructive details of machinery; but, as far as I am aware,there is no work in existence which aims at the same purpose as isattempted in the following pages, viz. to provide side by side suggestivesketches of the various methods in use for accomplishing any particularmechanical movement or work, in a form easily referred to, and devoidof needless detail and elaboration. A sketch, properly executed, is—toa practical man—worth a folio of description; and it is to such thatthese pages are addressed. For the same reason it has been deemedundesirable to add to the various sketches any rules or tables relating tostrengths or dimensions, which may be found in numerous well-knownvolumes.

Any suggestions or additions will be entertained and gratefullyacknowledged.

THOMAS WALTER BARBER.
